Michigan's Jace Howard, son of head coach Juwan Howard, scores first bucket in blowout win of Northwestern
Michigan Freshman Jace Howard is on the board, scoring his first points in Michigan’s big win Sunday night!
Facing off against Northwestern, the Wolverines were putting their unbeaten record and first-place conference standing on the line. Fortunately, Michigan rolled to a huge win over the Wildcats to reach 9-0.
Freshman Hunter Dickinson continues his strong play, scoring a game-high 19 points to lead five Michigan players in double figures. However, possibly the biggest bucket of the night was scored by Howard.
With the game already in hand, Howard worked a little give-and-go play and was able to score a hard layup while taking the contact. He drew the foul and a free-throw for his and-1 bucket.

This was a special moment for the Howard’s as Jace scored his first bucket for the Wolverines while playing under Juwan. Hopefully it is just the first of many more to come.
Jace was a three-star SF for the 2020 class out of Florida. He picked Michigan and playing for his father over Dayton, St. Louis, Northern Illinois, and San Diego State.
